What to dip in it? Carrots, celery, and other cut veggies. Triscuits and Wheat Thins are favorites, along with toasted baguette slices. I even took the leftovers and put them over scrambled eggs to give breakfast a zing!

Hot Spinach Dip

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time2 hrs 30 mins
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Keyword: gluten free, slow cooker, vegetarian

Ingredients

  • 10 oz frozen spinach thawed and drained
  • 8 oz cream cheese cubed
  • 8 oz mozzarella shredded part-skim
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 cup milk plus more later
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Instructions

  • Line or grease slow cooker, then add everything in.
  • Cook on low for 2 ½ hours, stirring after each hour. It will probably need another few tablespoons of milk at some point.

If you reheat this, add more milk each time before reheating and stir. Otherwise, you end up with a rubbery mess. This just makes up for the moisture lost when reheating.

    1. You can also do it on a stovetop, you just have to pay more attention to it so it doesn’t burn. That’s why I like the slow cooker – I can walk away and work on other stuff while it cooks!

  1. This looks absolutely delish! I used to make something similar, just a little bit different ingredients. Haven’t done it a while, thanks for the inspiration!
